WEST KELOWNA - Local residents should soon be enjoying the results of a traffic calming study conducted two years ago in the South Boucherie neighbourhood of West Kelowna.

Within a couple of weeks, crews will begin installing decorative medians along portions of Gregory and Mission Hill Roads, which could cause temporary delays and possible detours. Traffic control personnel will be on hand during these times.

Other traffic calming measures include signage and line markings at key locations.

Contractor for the $89,000 project is Arterra Construction, according to a press release issued by the District of West Kelowna. Construction is expected to be finished by June 30.

Drivers travelling through the South Boucherie area of West Kelowna should expect delays during this period.

More information about traffic calming is available on the West Kelowna website.
